In the wake of this weekend's big political reveal, WWD goes to the fashion industry for comment on John McCain's VP pick Sarah Palin. Though their article is focused on the Alaskan's style, surprisingly that topic doesn't come up in discussions with industry folks: "Nicole Miller said, 'It is great to see the process continue to open up and become more inclusive. But from what little I know initially, I am not any more impressed with Sarah Palin’s stand on the important issues than I am with John McCain’s.' Yeohlee Teng said, 'I am for anything that empowers women.'" [WWD, subscription req]
